Behold, the dawn of the John Beck era or error. Tonight we get our 1st impression one way or the other.

No Peyton Manning for the Colts so I guess the Colts have some stiff to shake the dust off and see if he remembers how to play.

Let's Go Skins!

we are about to get somewhat of a feeling at whether we'll sink or swim this season.Beck is gonna have to be sharp to look as good as grossman did last week.

Finally...One way or another, it will at least be nice to have something more concrete and immediate to debate, even if it's only a preseason game, rather than just extrapolating Beck's abilities based on ancient college/Miami history.

The pads and the lights are on... Got some fried chicken and some Bud Lite. What's not to like? Hail!

Beck just annoys me. What's up with his hair?

jaylen
08-19-2011, 04:58 PM
I guess its all about Beck. He just looks like if it doesn't go well he's gonna need counseling lol seems alitle fragile emotionally despite him talking tough.

I wanna see the young guys step up and see if we have any more playmakers on either sde of the ball.

If he does poorly do you guys think shanny will go with rex the next week?

Hopefully some of those links work... I'm actually excited to see this game. I want to see how Beck looks, along with Jenkins, Kerrigan, Helu, even Gano. I didn't get to watch last week so this is my first look.

Why do I have a feeling that Becks pedestrian performance against the Colts will be favored over Rexs good performance against the Steelers?

I know its preseason but is that the longest run from scrimmage since like 2005

jaylen

not gonna get too hyped but we are not gonna be a bad team this season our o line is much improved and trent Williams is going to the Pro bowl I think.

KMDeMuth
08-19-2011, 06:11 PM
nice, TH = going to get a lot of work this year.

2nd and inches and you don't run it in or QB-sneak? Glad they got smart on 3rd...

Positives so far, TD on first drive!

Goskins11
08-19-2011, 06:11 PM
Good work skins. They O Line looks pretty decent. Of course we didn't see to much because of that huge run.

flave1969

TD Tim Hightower. Good Job all.

08-19-2011, 06:12 PM

Hightower has that Portis thing with him when Portis 1st got here that burst and balance. Portis lost it over the years but thats what it reminds me of.

tbfoster1
08-19-2011, 06:14 PM
He had one nice throw to gaffney.

the throw to sellers was on the money too but he got tripped up

Had the throw in the endzone but sellers looked like he fell.

I would sit the starters after one more series except for Beck. Keep everyone healthy and let depth players fight for their spots.

hmmm Fox getting start next to fletcher. going to see more angry tweets?

I think he is starting in place of Fletcher cus Fletcher is slightly hurt. but I've already been wrong once tonight about who is playing and who is not

Penalties helped but good hold anyway, Nice Return Austin as well.

He is a real gamer, if he can shine on returns he will push Banks for that spot.

VegasSkinsFan

Loving Austin...Fox looks good so far also.

tbfoster1
08-19-2011, 06:20 PM
I know austin broke a few tackles but he is no banks. And i think Doc walker just lost some credibility with me talking about how good Westbrook is

Nice moves, Terrence!

*checks* think you are correct. Behind Fletcher on deph-chart & Mcintosh and Fox both showing on tackles/assist stat list.

nice 29 yard return by austin.

Monk4HOF
08-19-2011, 06:21 PM
Gotta give credit to Shanahan for seeing Young as a FB. Dude is great.

wave6ten
08-19-2011, 06:21 PM
Austin isn't as explosive as Banks but is definitely more serviceable as an overall player

Goskins11

kelly is done. I do'nt understand why he hasn't been released yet.

Great throw by Beck. and great run after catch by Young. we got talent.

Young is another good looking player.

justinskins
08-19-2011, 06:22 PM
Young reminds me of a younger Sellers.

jaylen
08-19-2011, 06:22 PM
beck doesn't have much zip on his passes Grossman has a much more live arm.

flave1969
08-19-2011, 06:22 PM
I really like Darrell Young.

jaylen

we should pull Highower asap he doesn't avoid contact enough he's proven his point get him outta there.

Goskins11
08-19-2011, 06:24 PM
nice work armstrong. I hope he makes the team. Hightower is running like a beast.

jaylen
08-19-2011, 06:24 PM
Holding.

Monk4HOF
08-19-2011, 06:24 PM
This is two weeks in a row where we are winning the blocking, tackling and penalty battles. Good sign.

KMDeMuth
08-19-2011, 06:25 PM

Helu in, nice run, but Holding call, gets called back.

It seems almost fluid and decent, now lets see how Red-Zone goes...

trent got schooled just now.

so...3-15 = run?

Gano FG, still progress.

Goskins11
08-19-2011, 06:29 PM
shoot. well ten points on the first two drives isn't too bad. They need to do better in the redzone though.

jaylen
08-19-2011, 06:29 PM
I thought Gano was out with his wife expecting he's smart he doesn't wanna let some other guy take his job. lol worse news is honey I done got fired for being here with you lol

Beck looks ok, Rex looked good..even Clemons looked ok last week. Not quite the moe,larry and curly i was expecting.

Beck has some nice zip on the ball

jaylen
08-19-2011, 06:30 PM
Our Redzone mentality is all F'd up we just go into this stupid play calling shell. how about a pass to Davis a jumpbal to Hankerson.

flave1969
08-19-2011, 06:31 PM
I am liking Helu as well, a different back to Hightower really nifty looking.

Trent got steamrollered there, shame because they were really spread out.

Dolla Bill
08-19-2011, 06:32 PM
Who says Beck doesn't have an arm? His first pass was a laser to Gaffney.

VegasSkinsFan

jaylen
08-19-2011, 06:32 PM
I am liking Helu as well, a different back to Hightower really nifty looking.

Trent got steamrollered there, shame because they were really spread out.

yeah he was set up too deep and allowed Freeny to get a running start into his chest he's gona get bull rushed quite a bit till he shows he can take the punch.

flave1969
08-19-2011, 06:33 PM
Pretty good so far with moving the ball.

KMDeMuth
08-19-2011, 06:34 PM
Stats to this point:

Hightower: 6 carries, 70 yards, 58 yard long, 1 TD. Likely done for the game.

Beck: 6/8 64 yards 0-TD 0-INT

Helu: 3 carries, 10 yards, 5 yard long, 1 10/12 yard run called back due to hold.

jaylen

Kerrigan actually looks okay in space. I thought he would be a mess.

kerrigan looked pretty good in pursuit there.

KMDeMuth
08-19-2011, 06:37 PM
Another good return by Austin, Riley-block in the back, negates run.

jaylen
08-19-2011, 06:38 PM
Kerrigan really works to the ball he does a great job even looking at his college stuff of following where the qb wants to try and re set to throw. he could create alot of fumbles on qb hits for us with that sorta savy.

Rak doesn't track the qb as well once he moves off his spot.

jaylen
08-19-2011, 06:39 PM
Beck is pretty accurate.

Austin isn't anything special but he is reliable.

KMDeMuth
08-19-2011, 06:39 PM
Austin, nice roll-out pass from Beck to Austin. Austin turns 5-6 into 9, almost 10 yards with second effort.

I got to keep reminding myself "its just preseason"

Also reminder to those who might have forgotten, Redskins = a LOT different compared to last year. (Where were these play-calls last year?) Other teams don't know what to expect and pre-season = not a whole lot of game-planning.

Austin catches it, diving back, Gano FG is good.

Bad throw Becksy.

CNYSkinFan
08-19-2011, 06:50 PM
if he leads austin there its a first down, has to work on his touch.

I think Austin wasn't expecting the ball. He looked surprised which caused him to fall. I rewound it to watch again and that's the impression that I got. Not sure what caused the "What a good throw!" comment by the announcer, since it was for a 2 yard gain, but Austin could've kept his feet and gotten the first if he was ready for it.

That's how it looked to me, anyhow.

Nothing overly exciting by the Colts, not sure how much is good coverage and how much is bad QB play by the Manning-less colts.
Good pressure on QB though
Good stop on 3rd and 10, kept colts reciever short of first down by less then a yard...punt.

I would like to see them try to run the ball against the Skins D a little...

Reason this is different than Spurrier preseason era:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/dc-sports-bog/post/ross-tucker-tells-hilarious-steve-spurrier-stories/2011/07/22/gIQAmjhXTI_blog.html

Ross Tucker:
What was weird was I was starting, I started every preseason game that year in ‘02, and we were killing people. I was like, wow, we’re awesome, I’m awesome, life is awesome, this is fantastic. And then I realized wait a minute, we actually only have two pass protections, and the Steelers are laughing at us because they say they know what our protection is, and Shane Matthews and Danny are getting blown up, and our poor running back, there’s no hot reads, there’s no sight adjusts.

Much different than clueless Spurrier

Both quarterbacks have played impressively in their 2 quarters of action. Beck's agility is the difference so far and has allowed him to make a couple plays that Grossman couldn't, so he's got to have a leg up on the position battle right now. I'm pleased with both performances so far, though.

Unfortunately for Rexy, it'll be tough for him to gain ground today. If he comes out and looks like he did last week, then we're all still pleasantly surprised with him, same as we were last week. If he stinks the joint up, Beck starts looking better. The only way for him to help himself considerably is by making big plays, but it doesn't look like we're calling passes that are designed to be home runs.

The short passing game has looked really nice so far, and I'll be happy with Rex if he can have another good outing and show some consistency, just not sure if that'll be good enough to help him win the battle.

It will be interesting to see if a starter is decided upon before game 3.

looking pretty good and I would say fairly consistent as compared to last week which is good news.

-Oline looks to be under more pressure than last week.
-We need to be practicing our red zone offense every day at practice.
-Seems like we can run the ball to the left, but not to the right. The right side of our line needs to work on moving the ball.
-I would expect that grossman and beck are going to be fighting for that starting position all year.

good half on both side. I need to see us throw deep because teams are gonna crowd the box if we don't threaten them deep.

If we actually have a deep passing game then we will be able to run our stuff underneath if not we have a problem.

Helu, Beck, the defensive line o line with the running lanes all doing well.

redzone play calling is just troubling. its a pattern going on more than a year.

odd short play-calling with less then 1 min in the game, lets clock run down to end 1st half

1st half stats:
16-0 Redskins
Beck: 14/17 140 yards O-TDs 0-INTs, 2 for 17 on the ground.
Hightower: 6 for 70, TD, 58 yard long. 1 for 7 yards receiving.
Helu: 10 for 76 yards, 51 yard long. 2 for 10 yards receiving.

Gano 3/3 + 1 extra point

Done with stat tracking, 2nd half will likely be back-ups/scrubs.

Beck looks efficient, but would like to see more than the dink/dunk stuff. Grossman probably gives us a better chance of winning.

The plan for this year,based on off-season and 1st 2 pre-season games with starters, seems to be defense, run the ball, setup short-intermediate passes.

Grossman is likely the more exciting QB to watch, but also most annoying. If Beck can actually do this in a game, short/intermediate and roll-outs/screens is his thing. Will fit what the team can do right now...

Expect to see a LOT outside from the QB's and RB's, sure there will be a lot of WR's across the middle though.
